Integrating Intersectionality in Recruitment Processes

1500 words, 7 min to read

More than writing about a commitment to being an inclusive employer, it’s essential to show how we strive to be.

We make sure that the description of the role is designed in a way that provides a realistic overview of the job and the requirements, without either disempowering potential candidates or underselling the level of difficulty of the position.

We prioritise the evaluation of a candidate’s way of thinking through problems and proposing solutions, of managing their work, and of learning, all competences which depend significantly less on a person’s formal educational background and which can be drawn from diverse work experiences.

We design processes that are as accessible as possible and  make sure that all communications to candidates are friendly, respectful and reliable.

We consistently and intentionally strive to make sure our work practices and employment policies align with the commitment we show.
